Recently, The Indian government banned PUBG Mobile in India. The owner of PUBG has cut it’s with Chinese tech giant Tencent in India.
PUBG Corp is distancing itself from Tencent Games, and is taking away publishing right for the game in India.
PUBG Corp said “In light of recent developments, PUBG Corporation has made the decision to no longer authorize the PUBG MOBILE franchise to Tencent Games in India. Moving forward, PUBG Corporation will take on all publishing responsibilities within the country. As the company explores ways to provide its own PUBG experience for India in the near future, it is committed to doing so by sustaining a localized and healthy gameplay environment for its fans.”

Tencent games had moved its servers for India players to India in order to comply with the government’s policies.
However, the game was still banned, due to its Chinese origin. It comes amid a spike in geopolitical tensions between India and China after a border clash in the Himalayas that left 20 Indian soldiers dead.
It remains to be seen how this proceeds forward and whether the Indian government allows the game back in the country.
According to app data tracker SensorTower, India was the app’s biggest market, with over 175 million installs to date. That means it accounted for about 24% of total downloads globally.
